You have somebody else do them? That's nice! My hubby has been spending hours on ours lately. They're so complicated when you live in another country! It's all greek to me.

Good morning Madeline :coffee

Great post in the "If You're New Here Please Read" thread.

Reposted here:

Matthew 7:21-23 - Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Cool verse, huh? Some people think that just because they sit in a pew and warm up the seats at church that they're heavenbound. Jesus stated in the parable found in Matthew 13 that only the seed which falls on "good ground" leads to repentance and saving faith. I wouldn't be surprised in the least if even Pastors and preachers find themselves before the Great White throne on Judgment day only to find themselves in for a rude awakening.

It probably shouldn't but it still amazes me when I read or hear some of the things "Christian" pastors write or say that is clearly unbiblical. So many of these preach unbiblical concepts of salvation and getting to heaven that it's obvious they themselves can't be born again.

I always wonder how many of these people are sincere but horribly wrong and how many are that way because they just don't care. Or, in the case of some, how many are consciously working a scam for the sake of greed and a life of relative ease.

Then there are all those tens of thousands who follow these false pastors... :sad

I really can't stand the preachers who teach that if you're in debt or if you're poor, then you are sinning. Or the Pastor's who love to give you guilt trips if you're not tithing. It frustrates me when some of these false teachers enjoy building themselves up by tearing others down.

I still do not know what the prize is for winning this game?

Do we get a pie :hungry:, or a free coffee mug :coffee or what? Maybe we will get a free pencil? :thanks:

Since I moved, I do not have Internet connection, so I have to go online during breaks at work. I miss posting here, but I find myself with all sorts time on my hands in the evenings now (no cable TV either), so I spend my time listening to gospel music and cleaning and unpacking. I find that TV is stupid and boring, and mostly redundant, so I do not miss that at all, but I do miss my time here at OB.

I think paying off one's bills, getting out of debt, and living within the means that God has given you is the way Christians' ought to live - not by whoever has the most "toys" wins.

There are far too many of these sorts of preachers in America. There are even those who prey upon the poor by proclaiming that if they send truly sacrificial donations to their ministry the Lord will rain money from heaven upon them. When these poor folks do this and the money doesn't rain these pastors tell them they didn't really give as much as the Lord wanted them to so they need to give more!

By the standards put forth by some preachers today, Paul and other New Testament saints would be viewed as not right with God because they were not living in health, wealth and prosperity. :roll

You best hurry and get your internet connection so everyone can know what's going on with Ron Paul!

True enough, Christians should live within the means they have, but preachers shouldn't tell the poor they are less spiritual because they don't have a big house and a fancy car.
